Fishermans Camp Loop Professional Review and Guide
"After a good rain, upper San Mateo Canyon brims with cold, sparkling water. If you come on a sunny winter day, you can often enjoy a couple of hours of very comfortable, almost summer-like temperatures. By midafternoon low sunlight floods the canyon, and you may be tempted to slide into one of the shallow pools for a quick cooling off."
--Jerry Schad and David Money Harris, Afoot & Afield: Orange County (Wilderness Press).
Additional directions to the trailhead. Clinton Keith turns into Tenja road, but after about 10 miles... you need to turn right to stay on Teneja. This is a great trail with up and down slopes. You cross the river bed a few times. with beautiful landscape. It was slightly foggy on the day we went and and it remined me hiking in the Andes Mountains. Our dog loved it.
